Generations ago, in 1848, this totally intact Cape was built on a nicely elevated 1.2 acre lot directly on the Mersey River in the Village of Milton. Restored and upgraded while preserving the original antique detail and character, it truly is an historic and iconic place of residence. It is not a museum however, and the extensive list of improvements and upgrades on file (including the stunning “Haver Kitchen”) make it obvious that the need for comfortable modern living has not been sacrificed. A stately (20’ X 60’) carriage house adjacent to the home creates a private courtyard, while an adorable (12’ X 16’) cottage and dock on the riverbank offer the perfect spot for a swim, a paddle in the kayak - or a toast to the sunset. With impeccable landscaping and 222 feet of tidal river frontage, this truly is like living in the country but within easy distance of all the amenities of the Town of Liverpool. Three of the finest beaches on the South Shore - Carter’s, Summerville and Beach Meadows are a short drive away as is Emera Centre, Pine Grove Park and Queens General Hospital. Halifax, and the Stanfield International Airport are just over 90 minutes from here.
From Hwy 103 take Exit 19 to Hwy 8 to Milton. House #256 on the river side.
